About the work
Profiling and Facing the Titillating Bits is showing the curves and the erogenous zones of a female body. The drawing alludes to the French film, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, directed by Céline Sciamma, whose way of filming women’s desire derails the scopophilic male gaze we are accustomed to.
